Overview

What I like most about Fitzgerald���­s informed and well-presented pamphlet is this: wherever I go on our maritime coast I see - frequently in pubs - old pictures depicting busy harbours of yesteryear piled high with barrels for herring or mackerel and jobs for all in season. I search in vain for any documentation on this thriving activity. Fitzgerald has done it and done it well for Baltimore.���­ The Irish Skippe
